The HSUS is, and always has been, unequivocally opposed to violence in the name of animal protection. In speaking out against violent acts, we have questioned the perpetrators' means of trying to advance their cause, but we have not questioned their commitment to animal protection. Animal-research advocates are already invoking the specter of violence to advance their agenda beyond simply discrediting animal protectionists.
In order to establish the 1990s as a decade of rapid progress in diminishing the pain and suffering that billions of animals experience each year in laboratories, on farms, in the wild, as pets, in sports and entertainment, and in exhibits and work situations, the undersigned humane organizations, representing millions of concerned American citizens, have adopted the following resolutions to promote and guide both individual and joint efforts on behalf of these animals who are so much in need of our immediate and compassionate care and protection.
